Practicals in innovative metallurgical products and equipment

The course is designed with a project-based approach, therefore the fundamentals of project engineering are given in the introduction. The student or a group of students assisted by their mentor create an entrepreneurial environment in looking for innovative solutions from metallurgical practice. By studying known solutions, they look for improvements in terms of quality and quantity. They may even attempt to manufacture new equipment. Example: The students take a methodological approach to manufacturing a testing chamber for testing plasticity at different hydrostatic pressures, i.e. up to 500 bar, and construct the chamber. The material is a valence state AM60 magnesium alloy that in essence demonstrates negligible plastic capabilities at room temperature. Manufacturing procedure: determination of the shape and dimensions of the product from a material with low basic plasticity, determination and assessment of local deformations, basic testing of the strength properties of the material for the chamber, influence of high pressures on yield point, sealing solution at high pressures, selection of material (AM60) with low plasticity and low forming strengths, testing plasticity at different hydrostatic pressures, determination of minimal hydrostatic pressures, manufacturing the tool for the real product, comparative forming in the conditions without hydrostatic pressure, comparison of the quality of the products, proposal for the technological solution and assessment of innovative elements.
